We hive no newiof importance in thli

Indiscriminate Itobberf and Plat:
derlns; by the Kebel Government.
The utter disregard of the right of
propetly even lhat winch belongs to its
secession sul jecls, manifested recently
on all occasions by the rebel Government
U arousing tho flerce opposition of the
people. The agents of the Government
break open meat-houses, rob tnills, sack
atorrn, plunder barns, corn-cribs and
stabhs, diive off berds of .cattle and
flocks of sheep, and even take away (he
wardrobes and bed clothes of private
familes, by force, for (he nsoof the army.
Payment foe these articles is no lo) ger
tendered, and even if it were, it would
amount to nothing, as gold is COO per
cent premium in Richmond.
To show the State of feeling against
the Government, we quote the following
extracts from the Richmond Examiner'.
"Olflei&l, legality, rnVitries never angwed
a srood purpose in any country or in any
age of the world ; and of all countries
and a;ca they suit ours least. '
These arbritrary impressments of Gov
ernment touch the people's pride and
sense of justice, and they tjftded a great
and rmliiral ehanne tn their sentiments to
wards the cawe.' Men who, in a rcmantio
and pious enihusiasrn for their country,
have cheerfully given up their sons to
the battle and have assisted with a sort
of mournful pridn in the burial of their
offspring slain on the field, have had (heir
feelings and temper towards theiiovern
tnnnt suddenly changed by (be rude and
and rapacious action orUovernment pres-
The temper of onr people revolts at
injustice and arbitrary violence, lliey
aro accustomed to the enjoyment of (heir
lights unimppBched, anvl, until recently.
they hate been strangers to wrong and
iiifiilt from Government ofllcials. If
they are properly compensated and
equally dealt with, they5 will pive all
their labor and savings to the Govern
meni, and give1 them cheerfully,' bnt if
these are exacted arbitrarily, and with
tnmilence and insult, they 'will not only
give nothing at all, but they will take
ell'i'dual measures to prevent tte minions of
(fnvemtnenl firm, Munung xvhat they prowl
through the eoun'.ry to seize for a mockery of
payment. 1 here is a feeling or resentment,
tteep-aeated and widely pervading theliest
class of the community against Government,
which is held responsible for these mad
and reckless impsessments ; and there
are high ollleers in this goodly city who
fancy they arc popular in the land, but
wh'ise names 'art lield in execration by Urn
staumh cl.tsses which, control public opinions
, Tho explanation of ihese Government
robberies lies in (he fact lhat the Gov
eminent has no funds but its own paper
to pay for its supplies, and this is mm
worthless. It niu-t live like a highway
man, and either rob or die. , ,t
i Tho leading editorial of the Augusta
Constitutionalist of the 8lh inst., is nothing
but a prolonged howl against the re
morseless seizure -and impressment of
property by the rebel Government, now
taking place all over the South. It pro
nounces such impressment " an arbitrary,
high-handed measure, for which Hier
can ba no palilalias ;" and says (hat ''if
persisted in, it will drive the people from
tho production of all articles of prim if
neeeseily, except what inay be sullkient
for the necessitiasof their families, thu-)
sapping the very foundations of the Con-i
federate Government, and even, of six iely

papers of yesterday:
Kt m tlw lto rt. '
The latest news we have- from above
was brought by the train from Lexing
ton last evening. It appears that the
rebel Infantry, under J. 0 Breckinridge,
and ihe cavalry, under Chenanlt iu all
suppled to bn from 12,000 lo 15,000
men crossed the, Cnmbeilsnd river on
Sunday morning at Ktagall'a Kerry, and
passed through .Min'own, Somerset, and
Stanford, reaching Danville on Friday
afternoon. Col. WoHord has had several
i.kirmi'diis with them. A cilixen of
Dai.ville spent night before last in Law
renctbnrg, and fiom that point an im
mense light was seen iu the direction of
Danville, giving rise lo the impreasion
that the rebels had se the place on fire.
General Carter's forces, consisting of five
regiments of infantry and two batteries,
burned Ihe bridge over Dix river, and
were yesterday encamped iu (he vicioity
of Camp Ditk Robinson.
There waa no unusual excitement iu
Lexington yesterday at two o'clock.
Geneial Ournsido was expected to arrive
there from Cincinnati. At Frankfort
there was some oneaainen felt among
Ihe citizens, though very few, if any
have left Ihe place.
. Quite a large number of refugees from
tho town of Danville and Boyle and Mer
cer counties, arrived in tlm city, yester
day afternoon and lust night, by railroad
and other meaos of conveyance. They
report that .the rebrls are conscripting
everybody that comes within their reach,
taking horses and other property as they
go along, i

There is no doubt that (he eastern
portion of Kentucky has been occupied
by rebel Iro-ps. The accommodation
train on' the Lotrfsvll'e and Frankfort
Railroad, which 'left Frankfort at 10
o'clock vealerday morninir, brought' a
number of refugees from the Interior of
the State, all of whom have their pecu-,
liar versions of the rebel raid.
We have a pretty well authenticated
report that Danville lias been occupied
by the enemy,' and that a rebil force of
seven thousand was advancing upon
Frankfort yesterday,- having arrived at
Lawrenceburg, a distance of twenty
three miles from the State capital.
It is also stated there was skirmishing
yesterday in the vicinilyof Camp Dick
Hobinsor!, in which Ihe enemy was worst
ed, but, owing to the superiority of the
rebel force, the Federal troops were forced
to fall back in the direction of Lexington.
'' There was great excitement yesterday
morning at Lexington and Frankfort, the
loyal residents or thoso cities fearing an
immrdiato advance on' tho part of the
rebels, and wc are aware that Ihe funds
of the batiks in each of those places were
rrnioved. 1 ' ' ! .
It viould not he proper for ns to state
the reo3ons, which back our belief,, but
we nie clearly of tho opinion that Ihe
reb'el force wh'ctv is at preneut. in Ken

upon Louisville, but they; will not even

The officers and soldiers f (he Fifth
Krstscby Cavalry, being on dress parade
at Nashville, Tcnn., March 17th, 1333,
adopted the following preamble and reso
lutions : .
Whkueas, We have learned with sur
prise lhat Cot. David R. Haggard was re
ported to the War Department, Washing
ton City, a beins; absent without leare,
and lhat he has been muatorcd eut of (be
United Slstes service therefor; where
fore. Hefdi.el, That the rep rt of his being
absent wi lmut leave is unjust and uu
Iruf. Col. ilajgard has not been absent
from his command without leave. That
he has not been absent at any time ex
cept when sick, and his Hickness being
the direct result of exposure when in the
line of bis duty.
, lit solved, That the officers now in the
regiment and soldiers now in camp re
spectfully though earnestly ask that Col,
Haggard at once be restored to the com
mand of the regiment.
Resolred, 1 hat by his energy and in
dustry the regiment Was organised, and
lhat through all the vlcisiiodes and
troubles the regiment has encountered
from its earliest organization and during
the progress of the same, he has been
our steadfast friend, and to his manage
ment and example we have established a
reputation and a name of which wa feel
Resolved, As a testimonial of our ap
preciation of his past services and our
present esiei ni for him 'as a gentleman,
patriot, soldii't and ntlim-r, wo tender o
him, through Major John Q 0 sley, how
commanding1 ti;e regiment; a sword, lash
and sprits, with a suitable inscription on
the sword, which we ask thai he shall
receive from tho offlceri of thi Fifth Ken
tucky Cayalry present and the soldiers of
the same now in camp.
Resolved, That with Col. Haggard re
stored to the command of the regiment
we think Iho regiment will soon be filled
again, and that we can have harmony in
the regiment. Men and officers know
where lo find him, his orders arc obeyed
and he treats us with kindness.
Resolved, That the editors of the Nash
ville Unioh, Louisville Journal and Dem
ocrat be requested to insert the above
resolutions in (heir papers, and will much
oblige (he officers andr soldier of the
Filth Kentucky Cavalry.,
Jonx Q. OwsLtv,
Major Commanding 5;h Ky. Cavalry.
Major Jons Q. Owsi.KV, Ccmimanifrn Hie
blh Kentucky CaVMry.
Through you I deire to express lo the
officers and soldiers of the 5th Kentucky
Cavalry toy profound gratitndo for the
friendly expressions of approbation of
my conduct, as your commat.diug officer,
since our first association as brother sol
diers. I doubt not that wo have been
actuated by the same mbtievs. Those of
us that hare given up our homes and fam
iiies living upon the border were 'prom
ised that we should bs permitted to do
fend and protect one families after 'the
rebels wero driven from' Kentucky. , As
patriots we Lave gone beyond our homes
and have penetrated the entire State of
Tennessee, and ramifled, and held every
point in Middle Tennessee, where we
have been ordered even as far as Ala
bama without a word of complaint
being uttered, ind aro now willing to be
ordered lo any point within (he limits
of Ihe Confederacy proper. We know of
but one great inucutivo to move the pa
triot in this struggle,' that Is to preserve
the ConHiitufion and its guarantues to
suppress' this rebellion at any and all
hazards. This being jour motive, wo
have maintained our honor, and have
frowned down and denounced every cf
fort of others, who have felt it their duty
to devastate the country through which
they have passed, in violation of posilivo
orders from headquarters.
Gentlemen, you have in a becoming
manner expressed your surprise at my
having been reported absent without
leave from my command. ' I am equally
astonished. It must have been the work
of pome designing person or on that, was
iguorant of the facta. I have not been
absent from my regiment at any time
without permission from the pr oper offi
cers, I have been absent from my regi
tuent when aick at Frankfort, under the
order of Gen. I)oVL, lo visit that city ;
another time in the city ' of Nash villa,
aud forwarded to the. city ; of Louisville
fjr treatment. My indisposition in both
instances waa the direct result of expo
sure when on duty. I feel' thankful to
you, indeed, for (ha interest you feel in
having me restored to the command of
the regiment. It la but just lhat the
true cause should be assigned for my
dismissal from the service. Major Gun
Rosscians has done ma the jusitoa to
aay that it was not intended to cast any
reproach upon me whatever, but because
I was .ucapacitated by reason of nick
ness frqui attending to the wants of my
regiment. If the order dismissing tne
frou service ' had ' have read thus,
it woiild Lave been zuyre aatiafaclory
to . myself, and (friend. - 1 am not
aware, however, that any authorized
person, ' (ofiicer) of . surgeon, ' ever
made an examination aud reported
the fct that I would no be fit for duty
Again'. I have no doiiUi that I was re
jHirtetl by some person who drairad me
rvsBoved from my command ( but 1 t baa
Woed out . that he fa as unfit for that
position a he La shown himself, to be
in other positions, to which he may have
been assigned. Th regimental Surgeon
and Medical Director report me fit for
duty. , .
You allude, to my energ v aud industry,
exhibited in the organization of the reci
pient, . I confess when my Slate was
iavaded I felt it at) imperative duty in
cumbent upon me, to make any cacriflVe
to put to (light the cruel invade a from

Editor of the Xushvilte Union :
Dear Sir A I believe mention has
never been made of our regiment through
any public journal, I deem it not im
proper to inform your numerous readers
of the existence and something of the
actions of Ihe 2d East Tennessee Cavalry,
commanded by Cel. D. M. Rat. The
regiment is composed almost solely of
exiled East Tennesseana.
Our regiment was first engaged in the
battle of Stone rivcrjn which battle they
lost several men, among others the la
mented Capt. James 11. Morris, well and
favorably known in East Tennessee.
The i egimenl was in the fight eight days,
during which time their horses were not
tinsaddled. While the battle of Stone
liver was progressing, Col. Rav with two
hundred and fifty jmen tinder his cow
maud, in company with Col. Cooren, of
the Clh East Tennessee Infantry, with
his regiment, while guarding a provision
train from Nashville ta Mtirfreeahoro, wis
attacked by a far superior rebel force
noar the Lunatic Asylum. The enemy
waa speedily repulsed, with a loss of
ten killed and more than thirty wounded.
We had I wo wounded.
It was the 2d East Tennessee Cavalry
who papturcd Maj. Clist Douoasj to
gether with forty-four men, horaet,
wagon, guns, &c, at'Midtlieton, soma
two months ago. ' ' " '
: On tha 21sl of March, being at that
time encamped on the Salem pike, the 3d
Cavalry Brigade, composed of the 2d
East Tennessee, Col. Rav, 3d East Ten
nessee, Col. Pickims, and the 4th Indiana,
Col. Slii'Lsn, was attacked by a brigade
of cavalry, just at daybreak.. Our bri
gade at the lime waa comparatively
weak, ai a number of our ueii were out
on the scout. Uad it not been for the
cver-vigilaul CoI. Dvx Rat, who at, the
lime had command of the brigade, we
would now in all probability most of as be
"way down South in Dixie.'' But the
Culoucl was wide awake, and had Ihe
boys to saddla up at 2 o'clock, A. M., so
that wlien our pickets were fired on we
were ready to , niodut and away, JOur
pickets were, hotly pressed and slowly
driven back, when they were reinforced.
Our men. formed in liu of battle and
banded it to them gallantly for mora than
two hour. They were on the full run
when a aection of artillery came up and
gave them a farewell that doubtless ye't
rings in their ears. -Colonels I'ickkns
and Suoi.er deserve much credit for the
gallaut style in which they'., behaved
Iheanaelves during the fight. They, to
gether with their commands, are worthy
of (b 'praise Of all. The brigade lost
one in killed, two wounded, .and had
several horses killed.. ,Ti rebe loss was
light killed afiJ several wounded.
When duly is (o b done, tur regiment
and brigade has ever been on hand. ' ' " ,
'Very respectfully, '
